MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to offer the best possible spinal treatment for our patients.

QCOS Spine is a team of five Brisbane based dedicated spinal surgeons brought together by the desire to provide patients with an exceptional level of care and respect in their spinal treatment.

The surgeons at QCOS Spine have a wealth of experience in the care of both simple and complex spinal surgical conditions. Often, non-surgical solutions can be found for our patients and all efforts are made to exhaust these options.  However, when surgery is required to make the difference in improving a person’s quality of life, our surgeons will offer a personalized and well thought out solution that delivers results. The two-way trust that is required, is not underestimated and excellence in our patient’s overall experience remains the primary focus at QCOS Spine.

THE TEAM

Highly acknowledged as key opinion leaders in their field of practice, all our QCOS Spine surgeons have completed fellowships through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Specialist training in Orthopaedic Surgery and Spinal Surgery has been the focus of all members of QCOS Spine. Beyond this, every member of QCOS Spine has completed further advanced spinal surgical and neurosurgical spinal training in both Australia and overseas, including International Fellowships in Canada, USA, Germany, United Kingdom and Singapore.

Our surgeons continue to keep ahead of the latest developments in the field of spinal care so we can offer our patients the very best of clinically proven solutions. Having dedicated their practice to the sole surgical specialty of spinal surgery, our surgical consultants collaborate on a weekly basis to discuss cases and to share opinions to ensure the best possible outcomes for all patients – teamwork delivers results at QCOS Spine.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

We really care, sounds simple, but it matters to us. Besides providing a real human approach to real people’s back and neck health issues, we offer confident, clinically proven and trustworthy management plans to our patients. 

QCOS Spine surgeons not only strive for excellence in surgery, but for excellence in patient care.  We look for the best solution for our patients, not just the best surgery for patients. When the going gets tough, a second or even a third opinion can help. Why? Because experience counts. We value our QCOS Spine approach in shared knowledge, experience and opinion to offer the best for each individual patient. We are always eager to source the right specialist for our patients, not just surgeons, but therapists, pain specialists, and neuroradiologists. Because teamwork matters.
